The author, Charles Bernstein, is a Hollywood composer who has written music for countless movies and television films. In this book, he goes beyond the world of film music to explore how the creative process works in our culture. The writing is accessible, easy to read, often witty, and should appeal to anyone interested in creativity, films, music, or just a good read.
Some questions considered in this book: What is inspiration? Where does music come from? Can music heal? What is originality? Can limitations free us? What can silence teach us? Why do melodies haunt us? The topics of the chapters are wide ranging, covering such diverse subjects as architecture, food, fashion, love, magic, psychology, religion and medicine. But the underlying themes are common to all of us—music, life, spirit and the struggles faced by all creative people.
This book is, as the title says, about Film Music...And Everything Else.

I loved writing this book. It was a welcome break from the often stressful job of writing music for movies. Although these words were originally intended for the film music community, I hope they will now reach a much larger audience. I also hope that the reader will find stimulation, interest and enhanced creativity along the way.
